Gene Luen Yang: My contribution to this anthology is a tale from the early life of the Monkey King, folk hero of ancient China. I did this story a while back as a way of testing out some new drawing materials (namely, brush on vellum). It worked out so well, I drew comics that way for years. (In case you're wondering, I've since switched to Japanese brush pen on typing paper.) I published The Motherless One as a mini-comic first, but eventually HarperTeen included it in this fine collection of stories about teenagers who just can't fall asleep. (Yes, monkeys can be teenagers, too.) My story is the only comic. The others are all amazing prose by amazing YA authors.About the Author:
